The perl bindings are really confusing. Start from scratch:

configure
make
make swig-pl
make check-swig-pl # PASS
make clean-swig-pl
make swig-pl
make check-swig-pl # FAIL

It was that FAIL after the rebuild that was confusing me. I get the
same thing in 1.6 so this is not a regression.

So r1037358 is not a problem, it's simply that when I reverted it I also
manually removed enough of the perl build that my environment got back
to the state in which the tests would PASS the first time.

Should we put this patch into Subversion?
